 Multiple Applications across 2G to LTE, various network architectures, different service carriers make MBB configuration
more arduous
 Traditional configuration and diagnoses mechanisms base on device-level management tools and manual processing are illsuited to meet the requirements of today‘s scalable, flexible, and complex mobile backhaul network.

Usecase1: Application configuration
Challenges
 various radio access modes: TDM/ATM-based and IP-based across 2G to 5G
 various radio applications: OM, voice, data, video with different SLAs
 various network architectures: multiple IGP areas and AS
Flexible Configuration
 where the T-LDP should be configured, where the BGP peer should be
established, where the VPN instance should be deployed, and where the
BGP LSP should be set up
I2RS Requirements
 Store a global mobile backhaul network solution provisioning information
in a central location
 Distribute MBB configuration from the central location automatically

Usecase2: Route Policy Enforcement
Route policy focus on:
 Avoiding route advertisement across entire network
 supporting best route selection for VPN FRR or ECMP
 allowing On-demand route advertisement
Dynamic enforcement
 Different network devices has individual route policy details in a networkwide route policy
I2RS requirements:
 Use common APIs to collect network information dynamically
 Push route policy centralized and automatically

Usecase3: Service Tunnel Implementation
Service tunnel types:
 MPLS LDP LSP: DU, DoD, Longest length match, policy for LSP control
 MPLS-TE LSP: multiple path control attributes and multiple protection modes
 MPLS-TP LSP: multiple LSP types, static LSP is need in MBB
Hierarchical deployment
 service tunnel implementation is not constant and unique across
access/aggregate/core network in MBB
 kinds of LSPs could be used separately or simultaneously in the whole MBB
I2RS requirements:
 Acquire the ability of network devices automatically
 Get the requirements of services on control plane to calculate and set up the
LSP centrally.

Usecase4: Protection Mechanism
Hierarchical Protection Mechanism :
 tunnel protection : LDP FRR (LFA, Remote-LFA, MRT, e.g.), MPLS-TE LSP HSB
and TE FRR, MPLS-TP LSP Line or ring protection
 service protection : dual-homing attachment is suitable with PW Redundancy
and VPN FRR or VPN ECMP
Flexible design
 Selection of service and tunnel, as well as the protection mode
I2RS requirements:
 Get the whole information about tunnel and service
 Control and manage protection design centrally

Usecase5: Network Monitoring
Multiple monitoring tools:
 Tools: Different monitoring tools for different monitoring objects, such as
NQA, MPLS-TP OAM, IPFPM
 Traffic path: get exact traffic path is useful for point-to-point detection
Accurate deployment
 Deploy appropriate monitoring tools and accurate detection
I2RS requirements:
 Get and store the entire topology and routing information centralized
 Calculate and store the traffic path naturally
 Deploy accurate network monitoring tools automatically
